VH1 is bringing its highly successful and hilarious I Love the 80s approach back for I Love the 80s: Strike Back!!!, a whole new bodacious trip down a day-glo-colored memory lane for the Gen X crowd. Viewers will get a fresh dose of the music, movies, TV shows, products, fashions, fads, trends and major events that defined pop culture each year of the decade. From Gremlins to Dynasty, bicycle shorts to Air Jordans, Dr. Ruth to Men At Work ... we will revisit it all from the uplifting to the ludicrous and everything in between.
A new batch of comics, rock stars, actors, and other celebs past and present will reflect on the '80s experience. They'll address all the major questions of the decade: How did Adidas stay on without laces? Who'd win if Jason and Freddy Krueger fought? And most important of all: Who you gonna call? Ghostbusters!
Viewers will be bombarded to the max with every aspect of '80s pop culture in each year of the most wicked decade on record. We're not just talking music, TV and movies either. We mean everything: toys, cereal, junk food, cars and anything else that helped make our "champagne wishes and caviar dreams" come true in the '80s.
